Cyber Battle of Estonia is for all 15-21-year olds in Estonia, who want to make their first great steps in cyber security.

It is a series of cyber security events - bootcamp, regional CTF event and final competition, which this year takes place on October 30th in Tartu

In year 2021 we visited 5 cities across Estonia (Tallinn, Tartu, Pärnu, Paide, Narva) with bootcamps and regional CTF events and onboarded over 500 new users to the cyber talent community.

Who is it for?

It's for everybody. No, seriously. Cyber Battle of Estonia is not targeted at experienced hackers. It is for making your first steps in cyber security.

What is the battle about?

Cyber Battle of Estonia is a series of cyber security events for Estonian students with all backgrounds. The core mission of Cyber Battle of Estonia is to bring new people to cyber security, help them take their first steps and get real hands-on experience.

The battle will take you through real-life situations where you will be able to do good with your new abilities. Find out who has been hacking the school? Help save the hospital from equipment failure? Stop the attackers from getting the valuables from the museum? It is up to you to make a difference.

It does not matter if you have little or zero experience in the field. Our mission is to show what it actually means to work in cyber security, what skills make you good, what aspects you will need later in life whatever your job occupation will be.
